What do think SheWrites?
My husband John and I had a great session with the therapist last night. I went to a writers conference on Saturday in San Francisco and had the opportunity to get feedback on my memoir pitch. I also pitched my memoir to a few agents, editors and publishers. I came back with a new plan to move forward with writing and publishing my memoir. We discussed how my day went on Saturday, mainly in terms of my ability to converse naturally with other people, as well as smile, introduce myself and…Continue

Unfortunately, the 10 percent theory really is just a myth, according to Ed…Continue

When I was little I was as chubby as can be. I know it’s hard for some people reading this to believe that, but yeah, I was the “fat kid,” and people weren’t afraid to point it out to me all the time. I’ve always thought words are powerful, and especially the words you tell a kid.
I would hear things like…Continue

This story is atypical of many groups who headed west in the earliest migrations. Getting a late start, a small group of wagons left Sapling Grove, Missouri on May 12, 1841. In the group were 35 men, 5 women and 10 children. about 20 miles west or Independence, MO., and not one of them had any notion of what lay ahead.
Of the women in the group three were married, one was a widow and one was a girl of marriageable age traveling with kin. Totally…Continue

As another St. Patrick's Day approaches, I've been thinking about the issue of identity and writing. As in, can we ever separate our national, ethnic, gender or other identities from our work and books?
In my case, I question if it's a blessing or a curse to be labeled “an Irish writer.” Is there a set of reader expectations for a book that hails from the Emerald Isle?…Continue
